Maths HEP Lunchtime Seminars: Diffusion and chaos in holographic systems at non-zero density

Presented by Richard Davison, Harvard University

28 April 2017 13:00 in CM221

Recent work has uncovered relations between the rate at which chaotic behaviour onsets and spreads in strongly interacting quantum systems, and the diffusivities of certain processes in these systems. Focusing mainly on holographic examples, I will explore the extent to which these relations hold in states at non-zero density, where the diffusion of charge and energy are no longer independent processes.
